Squat Life

I am loving teaching at 6:15am on Mondays! It makes me feel like I am starting the week strong and focused! I love the dedication of the ladies that get up early, before their kids, spouses, jobs, life to make their health and fitness a priority.  Taking the time to get stronger mentally and physically to give their best to the things they love.
